Notes from Nita,

Psalm 33:4-5 “For the word of the Lord is right and true; he

is faithful in all he does. The lord loves righteousness and
justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love.”

Psalm 33:20 “We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield. In him our
hearts rejoice for we trust in his holy name. May your unfailing love rest upon us, O

Lord, even as we put our hope in you.”


How very blessed we are to be recipients of the love of God. How can we ever give him the
thanks and honor to be his child. Those of us who were blessed with children remember the
love that we felt when our children were young and in need of our care and protection. Can we
even imagine that love God has for us? We can acknowledge that love by loving all his

children, caring and protecting all he has created. May we reach out to others with compassion
and a willingness to share God’s love.

JOY SENIORS



FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF MEBANE YOUTH MINISTRY


Four acts of obedience that will change your life

God wants more for you. Are you ready to step out in faith?

Do you ever feel tempted to simply fit in with others instead of standing up for Jesus and
fighting for what you know is right and true? Do you find it hard to completely trust God, and
find yourself listening more to the world than the Word?

If we’re honest, all of us have times where we’re afraid of being different and being ridiculed

for our beliefs and our actions. But Jesus says that’s exactly what we should expect.

“If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the
world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose
you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.” John 15:18-19


We aren’t called to be popular. We are called to obey. God's ways are always greater than
ours. And when we obey him, powerful things will happen in our lives.

1. Read God’s Word and talk to him
Time is something we supposedly don’t have, yet we waste plenty of it every day. It’s a
struggle for all of us to use well. You won’t ever waste time when it’s spent in God’s Word or
talking with Him.


It gives us strength when life is hard and joy when everything is dark. But most importantly, it
draws us closer to Christ. We need to immerse ourselves in the Word. Only then will we be
able to face what the world is throwing at us.
“Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” Psalm 119:105


2. Love others unconditionally
Sure, loving others isn’t that hard – or is it? What if we redefine the word “others” to mean
not just people who will love you back, but also your enemies, people who seem unlovable,
people who hurt you.

You have heard that it was said, “You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say
to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of
your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:43-48a

We’re called to love unconditionally, without expecting to receive love back. Because, after all,
isn’t that how Christ loved us?


continued...

3. Serve without expecting anything in return


Some people think of a great person as one who has fame, fortune, and 10K+ followers on
Instagram. Unfortunately, this is a warped view the world has tried to make us believe.


Look at what Jesus says makes a man great:


“But Jesus called them to him and said, ‘You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over
them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. It shall not be so among you. But
whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among
you must be your slave, even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give

his life as a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:25-28

We need to follow Christ’s example and serve without expecting anything in return. Our motive

should simply be to obey God instead of trying to get something out of it. It’s hard, but worth it.

4. Guard your heart

This is the final, and for me, toughest to learn. It is incredibly important for us as Christians to
guard our hearts.


There are many things floating out there that aren’t helpful, and can be pretty hurtful for our
walk. Social media, internet, and movies can all play a huge part in this.


“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” Proverbs 4:23


What’s in our heart determines our actions. We should be careful what we
listen to and watch because if we don’t pay attention, we will find
ourselves doing, saying, and thinking things that aren’t true.


Guarding your heart from sin and things that will hurt you includes filling
your mind and your heart with God’s Word and things that are true and
right.


“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, Meet Hurley Baker
Part of the FBCM
whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is
Youth Group
admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such

things.” Philippians 4:8

Friends, these are the things that should define who we are. It doesn’t mean we won’t sin or fail.

There is a guarantee we will fail, because we are human beings that still struggle with our sin.

But in God’s strength, and not our own, we can do these things for His glory. Get out there,
friend, and obey no matter the costs.

with them this month! We are continuing our crazy faith series. We have a few weeks left so
don't miss out on this life changing word! You can also tune in weekly to our Sermon Hype

series to catch up on the highlights of our sermons. That's posted to our social media sites each

Hello church family! April is such an exciting month.

We'll be celebrating Easter Sunday with our choir
musical at both the 8:30 am & 11:00 am services. New
Light at 6:3.0 pm will be doing a special service in the
evening on Easter Sunday as well as Good Friday.



All 3 services at this church have such a wonderful music ministry
thriving in our church community. Our new tech director Joe Carter,

has a great team going with all the visual, sound tech & video
ministries that are being broadcast on the web thru Facebook & our
YouTube channel. The COVID restrictions might be loosening in

the coming months & we'll continue to be safe but it looks like our
Easter Cantata on line presence will continue to expand. Don't forget to take a few
April 4th
8:30 & 11:00 am moments and pray and reflect on what Jesus has done for us all this
Services time of year!

Chris Conley, Music Director



PRODUCTION &










First off I wanted to say thank you all for your support over the past few months of joining the
staff here at First Baptist Church of Mebane. It has been an incredible experience watching God
grow our Production ministry through some of the changes we have implemented from bringing
on new volunteers to updating our technology that has helped improve our services both in

house and on our livestream. I can't wait to see what He is going to do next!

With all of the updates and new technology we have implemented also means there are now

more opportunities to help out and serve within our church. We are still looking to add
volunteers in our 8:30 am Traditional, 11:00 am Contemporary, and 6:30 pm New Light
services; so if you are interested in learning more about being a part of the Production team and

want to help out a few times a month, feel free to email us at [email protected]

Thank you all and looking forward to what God does next!


Joe Carter
Production Director

Honoring a Faithful Servant


First Baptist Church of Mebane would like to take this opportunity to recognize Ward Setzer for
the hard work and dedication he has given in the service of the Lord at FBCM.

In 1995 Ward used his capacity of general contractor to renovate the FBCM church building.
Two years later, Ward and his wife Paula joined the family of First Baptist Church of Mebane

on March 16, 1997.
Ward has served as a Deacon and on various committees/teams over the years but the one team
he is most recognized for is his dedication as Team Leader of the Properties Team. Ward has

served as leader for this team for more than 20 years.
On Sunday, February 28, 2021 Ward Setzer was presented with a lifetime award as Properties

Chair at First Baptist Church of Mebane.

"I will ask for no reward. Except to serve thee still" - and to serve thee better.

THERE IS ONE SERVICE IN WHICH THERE IS NO DISAPPOINTMENT. We are the
servants of Christ. We delight to call him Master (John 13:13). We owe him everything, and we
offer him the subjection of our will, the trust of our hearts, the service of our lives. He will not
disappoint us. He will not forget our work of faith and our labor of love. The slightest service
shall "in no wise lose its reward." He will generously regard what we do for his humble

disciples as something rendered to himself. Here we shall possess his loving favor, and there his
bountiful recompense.

Based on the words of Jesus in Matthew 25:40 is to serve the least of
these, our spring Operation Inasmuch is scheduled for Saturday, April
17th, 2021; we‘ll begin by meeting at the church at 8 am., and after the
projects are completed, a box lunch will be provided as we continue to

fellowship with each other.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with this ministry, it is a day to show God’s love by doing
small jobs for persons in our own community and visiting our home bound and shut in
members. It is a wonderful time of fun, fellowship, and a “little” work is involved too!


Sign-up sheets are available on the table in the Welcome Center and the bulletin board outside
the Fellowship Hall, or you can contact David Faircloth at his cell number, (919) 605-4437 (call
or text) or by email to [email protected]


If you need more information on projects or Operation Inasmuch in general, David can also
help with this as well.

A Trampled Rose

by Katherine Kehler






“Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ

loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God” (Ephesians 5:2).


Just a few years ago, while in church one Sunday morning, I was introduced to the song, Above
All written by Lenny LeBlanc and Paul Baloche. I cried when we sang the chorus. In fact, for
years, I could not sing the song without being deeply moved. I still can’t.


Crucified laid behind a stone

You lived to die rejected and alone
Like a rose trampled on the ground
You took the fall and thought of me
Above all!



Just to imagine Christ, my comforter and best friend, crucified, rejected and alone, touched me
deeply. I myself was going through a time of rejection and felt very alone, so the words of the
song touched me deeply – realizing that Christ must have had some of the same feelings.


The sentence, “Like a rose, trampled on the ground”, gave me such a clear word picture

of what Jesus went through for us.
One of the names of Jesus is “Rose of Sharon.”


One week, my husband and I spoke at a Day of Prayer gathering. We sang the song again and

the Lord gave me a new insight. When a rose is crushed or trampled, it offers a very sweet
fragrance. Jesus is a sweet smelling fragrance. The Apostle Paul tells us that we are a sweet

smelling fragrance to those who believe. I wondered what kind of fragrance we as Christians
offer when we have been rejected and feel alone – when we have been crushed and trampled on.
Mine is not always sweet. How about you?


Lord Jesus, thank you! Thank You that although you are above all powers and kings, nature
and all created things, you were trampled to the ground – for us. Yet being crushed, you were
like a sweet smelling rose. You did it all for us. We ask that today and every day, when we feel
crushed and rejected, a fragrance of sweet smelling rose would flow from our spirit so people
would be drawn to you.
Amen

Rev. Sammy,

The family of Ruth Lowe would like to thank you so much for officiating at my Aunt Ruth
Lowe’s funeral. Aunt Ruth felt so close to the congregation of FBCM and the outreach provided
to her by so many. The bible studies at Mebane Ridge, was so important to her. Out family has
experienced much loss this past year and we covet your continued prayer.


May the Lord be with you,
Robin Tate Harper

P.S. I appreciate your continued care of my parents, Bill & Jean Tate.
